  • Cladophialophora lanosa sp. nov., a New Species Isolated from Soil. [Journal Article]
    Mycobiology 2019; 47(2):173-179Das K, Lee SY, Jung HY
  • Cladophialophora is characterized by simple hyphomycetes with brown hyphae that give rise to branched chains of pale brown conidia and shows affinities with the Herpotrichiellaceae. A fungal strain belonging to the genus Cladophialophora was isolated from soil in Daegu, Korea. This strain produces numerous greenish to dark black lanose aerial mycelia with hair like structures. It is morphological…
  • CNS Infections Caused by Brown-Black Fungi. [Review]
    J Fungi (Basel) 2019; 5(3)Velasco J, Revankar S
  • Central nervous system (CNS) infections caused by brown-black or dematiaceous fungi are distinctly rare and represent a small proportion of infections termed phaeohyphomycoses. However, these are becoming more commonly reported. Though many fungi have been implicated in disease, most cases are caused by only a few species, Cladophialophora bantiana being the most common. Most of the fungi describ…
  • Sticks and bones: Traumatic phaeohyphomycosis presenting as an epidural scalp abscess and cranial osteomyelitis. [Case Reports]
    Med Mycol Case Rep 2019; 24:75-77Oehler RL, Katzman JH, … Toney JF
  • The pigmented molds can cause soft tissue and invasive disease (phaeohyphomycosis) in immunocompetent patients. We describe a 76-year-old male patient who developed a Cladophialophora bantiatum posterior scalp abscess and cranial osteomyelitis following an incidental scalp exposure with a tree branch. Management requires extensive surgical debridement followed by prolonged antifungal therapy.
  • A black mould death: A case of fatal cerebral phaeohyphomycosis caused by Cladophialophora bantiana. [Case Reports]
    Med Mycol Case Rep 2019; 24:23-26Howlett S, Sullivan T, … Singh-Curry V
  • Cladophialophora bantiana is a neurotropic mould and primary cause of cerebral phaeohyphomycoses, which presents with brain abscesses in both immunocompromised and immunocompetent individuals. It is associated with high mortality due to delay in diagnosis and absence of standardised therapy. We present a case of fatal cerebral phaeohyphomycosis in a 67-year-old Caucasian man. Diagnosis was achiev…
  • Cladophialophora bantiana infection mimicking neuromyelitis optica. [Letter]
    J Neurol Sci 2019; 399:169-171Enomoto S, Shigemi H, … Nakamoto Y
  • Cladophialophora bantiana (C. bantiana) is a life-threatening melanized mycelial fungus causing brain abscess. C. bantiana is usually observed in tropical countries, including India. We report a Japanese case of C. bantiana presenting with myelitis mimicking neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and brain abscess. A 73-year-old man was administered prednisolone (30 mg/day) for antineutrophil cytoplasmic ant…
